*Miscellaneous 1960 Onwards: As part of his pioneering, if short-lived, involvement with the ‘America’s Best Comics’ imprint, Alan Moore created, in conjunction with artist Kevin O’Neill, a Victorian era combination of characters from famous literary works: Captain Nemo, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the Invisible Man and so forth. This unlikely and reluctant alliance faced down foes in two mini-series, then resurfaced periodically from various publishers in a number of one-offs, original graphic novels and spin-offs, as well as trade paperbacks compiling the early iterations. The subject of a controversial film (which Moore publicly disavowed and condemned, and which is rumoured to have caused star Sean Connery to retire from acting!), the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comics and graphic novels are of a much higher quality. Even if, over the intervening years, Moore’s narrative techniques have become ever more esoteric and oblique, there is much entertainment to be had in his shameless plundering of popular culture, with characters from Thunderbirds, TV’s Avengers, Ian Fleming’s oeuvre and Billy Bunter being involved in cosmos-altering events – sometimes as major players, sometimes as carefully non-litigious cameos. Our newly listed League of Extra Gents stock features selections from the two original mini-series (including the catch-up Compendium Editions of series one), the original Graphic Novel Black Dossier, the spin-off hardcover OGNs Nemo: Heart of Ice, Nemo: The Roses of Berlin, and Nemo: The River of Ghosts, and three trade paperback compilations, of Series One, Series Two and Volume Three, which collects three stand-alone editions.
